Shailini must first drop off her dog, Fido, at her friend's house next door. She wants to spend 45 min talking to her friend.What is the latest time she should leave her house?

Set-up equations

1) x - 7 + 3 + 6 - 8 + 1 - 6 = 3
x + 10 - 21 = 3
x - 11 = 3
x = 13

2) x - 12.00 + 15.00 - 7.00 - 8.50 + 8.00
+ 2.00 = 22.25

You solve

3)
Miguel
x + 15 - 4 + 6 - 17 + 22 + 14 = 40

Yoshi
x + 12 - 4 + 33 - 7 = 40
You solve

4)
3:35--plane
2:00--less 2h
1:35--check-in
1:35--less to get to airport
12:00--noon
00:45--less 45 min talking
11:15--leave house

Check for this
11:15---leave house
00:45---45 min talking
12:00---time now
1:35---1 hr 35 min trip to airport
1:35---time now at airport
2:00---2 hrs early for check-in
3:35---time now--
plane leaves

I think in a question 2 the answer is 24.75. Correct?

What about a question 4. 3:35 is the latest time she should leave her house?
